people in the game the first debate. >> did you know mccain beat obama on election day in iowa and that obama got his margin of victory there strictly from early voting? they know that and they're doing it much more robustly this time around. >> the president is urging it on the stump. >> if you look at a state like iowa and which parties requested how many absentee ballots democrats requested a hundred thousand. republicans 16,000. so that gives you an inkling of the early voting and which way it is likely to go. >> i think it is really getting into that point that he has to turn it around by now. >> you know what? things can change overnight. >> they can. >> with a great debate performance. but again, mark halperin, time is running out. if you look at all of the polls, we've been seeing over the past couple weeks, mark, ohio, florida, the big swing states. it seemed to be moving decidedly in the president's direction. let's look right now. i want you to give me your input on these states on a group of other battleground states we haven't looked at as closely. this comes from

, it's going to be a jump-ball election three or four weeks from now. it's going to be within two or three points. it's that close out in the country. i think tonight's debate, though, matters a great -- >> let me stop you there, mike. so you do think it's still going to be a jump ball because obviously mitt romney's had a horrific september. his own people say, man, what a horrible month. but we still have a long way to go here. you think it's still going to be a jump ball? >> yes, i do. i do. because of two elements that polls can't really get to, the level of anxiety in this country about daily life and about the immediate future of our economy, and the level of disappointment in barack obama held by obama supporters who will vote for him, but they are still disappointed in him. so those two things alone, i think, are going to result in a jump-ball election. but to the debate tonight, i do think it's going to be important for mitt romney. the reason i think it's going to be important for mitt romney is i think very few of us have an understanding of the ripple effect of the 47%

in the first one, there's no doubt about that. what is it going to change? >> the outcome of the election. >> no, it's not. right now in a serious bet in front of the american public, there are 6 million or 7 million people watching as we speak -- >> hold on a second. you're not even talking about armed forces radio. >> the troops, donny. >> why do you hate the troops? i guess you're going to try to disengage them. >> 20 million people watching, let's make a serious bet. did he win the debate? slam dunk, no question, embarrassment. it is not changing this election. what can we bet? >> so we've wasted enough time here. i'll think about something. i do think, mark halperin, it changes on the margins. i think suddenly florida, nevada, colorado, virginia, north carolina, all of these swing states that were close, i think if ryan/romney have a couple more good debates, those all go in the romney column. that was a freudian slip. but at the end of the day, though, the question is committee make up the big difference in ohio? can he make up the big difference in wisconsin? because if he doesn't

's say he wins the final two weeks. he still loses the election. you can't just win on election day anymore. i mean, it starts this week, really. >> well, let's go to iowa where paul ryan will be campaigning today. "the des moines register" has the president leading 49% to 45% among likely voters, just 2% are undecided. those numbers are raising the stakes for the romney campaign ahead of wednesday's debate in denver. and right now expectations seem to be with the president. 55% of likely voters expect him to win the debate, according to polling from a the washington post and abc news. >> a poll that means absolutely nothing. >> it's good for romney. >> because he's got lower expectations. >> underdog. >> i guess so. >> and people could be surprised simply by seeing them side by side. i mean, the symbolism, the symbiotics i don't think can be overstated. seeing them side by side, if romney does well, i think he'll get a bump no matter what the sort of intricacies are. just side by side with the president in terms of stature and in terms of people thinking he can win, on equal footin

. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> you said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas? look, i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant, but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. mr. president, you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not your facts. i don't have any plan to cut education funding and grants for people on going to college i'm continuing on growing. is it so critical it's worth paying to china? i apologize, mr. president. i use that term with all respect. okay, good. so i'll get rid of that. >> i don't know what he was doing out there. he had his head down. he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. he had a plan. he was going to dominate the time. he was going to be aggressive. he's going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively. he was going to relis

, he's going to lose the general election creating chaos in the republican party and that's going to leave open 2016 -- oh. the jersey is strong in this one. >> welcome to "morning joe," it's top of the hour and howard dean's already inciting problems here. it's tuesday, october 2nd. with us onset we have msnbc mike barnicle. howard dean, and former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner, stranger. >> long time, no see. >> you're always here. >> you're never here. >> we're globe trotting, what can i say? hi, willie. >> what was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fascinating. the debate was last night and we have fascinating clips of that. and also the look at pre
